Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition


Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...


Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap


Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Rep. Polis Statement on Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization
Washington, D.C., July 11, 2016: The House of Representatives approved the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization (H.R.636) this evening. The FAA reauthorization will extend funding for the program through Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 and includes critical provisions to enhance TSA security, shorten security lines, and refund luggage fees when bags are lost or delayed. The package also expands pre-check lanes and improves its sign-up process, assists traveling families to ensure that young children can sit with their parents, and requires airport staff to develop better training techniques when assisting individuals with disabilities. Despite these strong measures, members of Congress were not given the opportunity to improve the bill through amendments. The reauthorization did not include the Helicopter Fuel System Safety Act, a key provision Rep. Polis and Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.) have been advocating for since the July 3, 2015, Flight for Life crash in Frisco, CO. The i
Polis statement on Obama Administration’s move to increase homeowner access to renewable energy
Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) released the following statement on the Obama Administration’s announcement of new guidelines for families to install renewable energy and water conservation projects in their homes.   With the updated guidelines, Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing will once again be available for all homes with mortgages issued by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). It will allow homeowners to complete energy projects immediately and pay back the cost over time through their property taxes. “Solar energy has been a tremendous success in Colorado.  It has helped homeowners save money while reducing air pollution and carbon emissions,” Polis said.  “President Obama’s action to expand solar energy financing through PACE will allow more homeowners - especially, veterans as well as low and middle income families - to put solar panels on their home and save on their electricity bills, in turn creating jobs and combating climate ch

Applying for Federal Financial Aid will be Easier and Quicker
Washington, D.C., July 11, 2016: The House of Representatives approved Rep. Polis’s bill to simplify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) today.  The Simplifying the Application for Student Aid Act (H.R.3177) modifies the application process by: ·Allowing students to fill out the FAFSA as early as October, as opposed to January.  Students could fill out the early FAFSA using family income tax returns from two years prior, rather than one year prior. ·Making a mobile-version of the application available for students to apply on their smart phones. ·Linking required data on the FAFSA with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data retrieval tool, so information can populate automatically in the FAFSA form. “I am happy we were able to cut red-tape today to make it easier and quicker for students and their families to fill out the FAFSA.  It makes sense that students should be able to fill out the FAFSA on their phones, using data that they have alre
